The Wonderful and Miller Creek Companies Express Themselves Through  Manager  Davis.  Manager Davis, of the Wonderful  and Miller Creek mines, interviewed  in Spokane the other day said :  '"The mines will probably be shut  down for a time. I expect to sut down  the Miller Creek- and Wonderful with  others until some agreement is reached  so we may know what to depend upon.  This eight-hour law was not asked for  by the miners nor the mine owners.  It was passed at the request oi some  Occur d'Aleno agitators, who are up in  that country. Any reasonable miner  would prefer to work ten hours per clay  and get $3.50, to working eight and receiving S3. I would rather pay thc  10-hour scale than the lower one. Of  ail the men m my employ, I do not  think there is one who ia in favor of  the new eight-hour regulation.'  "Concerning the Wonderful and.Miller Creek, Mr. Davis reports development proceeding steadily. -"The crosscut tunnel on the Miller'Creek is in  about 270 feet and making good headway toward the vein. The upper tunnel on the vein has passed through ore  continuously for 146 feet to where a  break was encountered, and, alter some  development there, the ore body was  again Iound and is being followed. On  the Wonderful work has stopped at  the point where the cached ore was recently found, it being so near tne surface that water comes in too lreely to  permit of more.work there until thc  spring thaw is-over. The cross-cut  tunnel on the Wonderful is in 575 feet,  and a raise is being made on a stringer  of galena in order to determine tho  stn<e oi the vein fronf which  stringer is supposed to lead.'"  the  Attempted Suicide.  "The celebrated Oriental, in the  bourse of an interview, said he had  oeen delighted with what ho had seen  cf Canada. The country and ils climate had been a revelation to tho members of his party.- Its vast area and  illimitable resources had impressed  them'to a very great extent, as had,  also, the very apparent prosperity of  its people. Especially interesting hud  been their visit to the House of Com-  mous at Ottawa. ���������.  '���������In referring to Chinese affairs, Kang  Yu Wei alluded to thc recent depositions of the Emperor. 'It was all nonsense', ho said, 'to suppose that there  was any danger of thc Emperor losing  his life. The Dowager Empress might  wish the Emperor out of tho way, but  she dare not go so far as to suggest the  idea of assassination. The Emperor,  while nominally a prisoner, was yet  accorded a large amount of liberty,  and was to go and come as he wished.  He was always under the surveillance  ofthe Imperial Guard, however.'  "With regard to thc present Empress, the speaker, described her as a  woman of indomitable will, and one  who had given to" the world many  tokens that *he really desired to promote the well-being of her subjects.  "With regard to thc object of his  visit to England. Kang Yu Wei said  that ho represented the Liberty party  in China, and that in going to England  ho was but following the expressed  wishes of /that party, the,members of  ivhich desired to cultivate friendly relations with England. Concerning tlie  reforms which he hoped to seeure in  China, His Excellency said that they  included the abolition of the mandarin system, the building of railways,  thc establishment of a free press, thc  cultivation of Furopean arts and  sciences, and the inauguration of thc  open-door palioy. .

A Large Attendance of Sports and Pleas-  uie-Seckers   From Sandon  and  Other Slocan Points.  Good News From Ainsworts.  "Doc" Gle.son,   an   old timer,   run  down in "mind, body and estate," tried  '  to rid  the   world of his presence   on  Thursday morning.   He was stopping  at the Denver hotel, and in his condition, he concluded that  the best thing  be could do for himself and others was  to make an attempt   to step into  the  great unknown, Where landlords would  not  be looking for   board Hills.     He  made several attempts to cut thc main  artery  in his left arm,   when he was  discovered bleeding profusely by some  of   the   inmates   of the  house.    Dr.  Power  and the police   were at  once  called.   Thc Doctor dressed the wounds  temporarily until the man was placed  in  the hospital, which now,   by contract,    takes      charge    ot'i all   such  cases.' The Dr. says it Gleeson had cut  a few inches lower on thc arm he would  have made   a complete job  of it.   A  question   of  payment   to   Dr. Power  conies up.   The city has made a con  tract with the hospital to take charge  of all pauper cases;   but Dr. Power,  who  has not the  hospital work,   was  called in,  and saw that if he  did not  act promptly death would result.   The  general public will say the Dr. should  be paid for that yisit. ��������� He did not go  of his own choice, but merely because  he was called,   and, 'undoubtedly,   by  going promptly   he'saved a life.   Of  course the hospital charge will be less  than if they had taken charge  of the  patient   at ,first.    The   public would  have thought it  hard if tne Dr. had  not gone and  the man died in consequence, ���������  Finnk Fitch, of Ainsworth, who is a  miner and mine owner as well, was m  Nelson  a few days ago. ��������� Ho confirms  the information received by  the Tribune that there  will be no  trouble in  Ainsworth over   the  introduction   of  tho eight-hour Jaw.    For some time  past the rate of wages for miners employed  in thc  woiking mines  of the  camp has been $3 for  ten-hour shifts,  and there is no suggestion of any reduction.   The most encouraging news  which has been received in Ainsworth  for some time has been the information     that   Maxwell Stevenson,   the  owner ol the Highlander property, had  decided to run a 2000-foot tunnel upon  it.   It is currently reported  that Stevenson has secured control ot the Black  Diamond and Little Donald,' and that  the proposed tunnel will tap the Black  Diamond ledge.   The tunnel will give  a depth of close upon  1000 leet on the  Highlander vein and  a vortical depth  of 800 feet.   'Die Highlander ore is   oi  a high grade, and the prospect of having the same developed id very gratifying to the people ol  Ainsworth.    The  tunnel   will be driven by power, and  the compressor plant is now  being received at the wharf landing.  As advertised, the train. chartered  by tho Miners'Union of Sandon bound  for Slocan Lake at Rosebery, left the  deoot at 6:45sharp. The miners lined  up in front of their hall and marched  to the station led by the Brass Band,  which had its fir3t experience, as a  band,' in marching. The band boys  looked well in their,.new uniforms  (though not tho neatest things in the  world in the clothing lino) and sus-  tnined their reputation as a ffood, all-  round nma'eur band. The C.P.R. had  not the best of accommodation to offer,  owing to having to run two trains, but  ai they did their best and made tasty  decorations of the trains thc sterner  sex did not. kick at having to ride a  ft-w miles in box cars. At ftosebory  thrcommodious steamer "Slocan" was  waiting to convey tho excursionists to  Silverton, eisrht miles down the beautiful, mountain-begirt. Slocan Luke. ,  Although -there was a rival-celebration at New Denver, none left the boat  at that point; tho regular from Sandon  was. though, a special for those  disposed to spend the dav with the  Denverites.  _ On arrival at Silverton the first tn'  attract the eye urns tho very pretty  arch of evergreens at tho street end oY  the wharf, bearing the mottors "Welcome" and "Come Asrain," and thc second attraction w,is the cleanly and  well-graded condition of tho wide main  street. Across I :io st.'oct at intervals  were several streamers of the "Red.  White and Blue," giving the little  mining town, whose citizens were all  astir for a, big day, a gala appearance.  A procession was again formed and led  up to the hotels of Messrs. Brandon  Bros., Thorburn and Bowes, where they  dispersed after some music by the  band. Thc first on the programme  was  a football match between Silver-  Ymir Jottings.  About 12 tqjis of concentrates are  coming down daily from the Ymir mill  now, and a largo pile is being accumutated at the depot. Tho crude smelting ore is also to be shipped at the rate  of about 50 tons per week.  ' A wonderful strike has been made  in thc tunnel of thc Spotted Horse  claim owned by Hank Noll, says the  Spokesman-Review. At about 75 feet  from the mouth of the tunnel a rich  chute of free milling ore, carrying considerable visible gold, was disclosed,  An assay from a picked specimen gave  a return of ������10.314.33 in gold per ton,  while an average sample of tho rich  strike gave $202.56. Tho ledge varies  in width from about 12 inches to about  two feet six inches. The assay mentioned above, although of course taken  from a picked sample containing visible chunks of gold, is the highest over  taken in this vicinity.  T. A Helm, of the Rio Grande Gold  Mining Company, was in Nelson this  week and reports good progress on the  property owned by his company near  Ymir. This property consists of four  claims on Porcupine creek. A fine  ledge of concentrating ore, seven feet  wide, has been uncovered and followed  by a tunnel now in 110 feet. Tho ore  consists of iron pyrites and galena in  a white quartz matrix. Another tunnel has been driven in 10-4 feet, crossing the first lead, and a cross-cut is  bbing, driven from the breast of this  lead to tap a fine chute of ore in .on-  other ledge, which has been disclosed  inn the shaft sunk to tho depth of 25  leet. A recent assay from this shaft  gave SCO in all values, $30 being in  gold and tlie other hnlf in silver and  load. Besides those 'two ledges a further ledge of free milling .quartz has  been discovered and work had just  been started upon it.���������Nelson Miner.  <J  quoted at 01c in  New  Bar silver ii  Yoik.  The Bosun has hired some miners  at S3.00 for the short day.  A strike of 3 inches of good, clean  ore was made last week by John Potter  on the'Belf'ast property, near the Pal--  mita.  Mr. Davis, manager of the Wonderful  group, will shortly work the Heather  Bell���������a group of three claims next to  the Palmita.  The Fairy Queen, on Ten Mile (Slocan Lake), is likely to be bought by-  Toronto parties.  Important new finds have been made  on the Lone Star and the Queen Fraction at Silverton. They are, both galena properties.  Cliff Sealc left Thursday morning for  the Fort Steele country, to be joined at  Nelson by C. M. Wilson, M.E., to look ���������  over some properties there in view of  purchase by the new Payne Mining  Compauy, of Montreal.  Some seven or eight cars of machinery hare arrived for the Ruth concentrator. '  As the mines at Occur d'Alenos have  started up at S3 50 per day, a rush will  likely be made by man} of the beat  miners for that district.  William Rockefeller, William G.  Rockefeller,, H. H. Rogers and A. C.  Burrage have been elected trustees of  thc A naconda Copper Company. They  represent the Standard Oil Company's  interest in the corporation.  Ground has been bioken for the,  Ruth concentrator and already there  are many men at work levelling the  foundation. Several cars of material  have arrived from the foundries and  machine shops, so there will be no delay in the work.  The Work About Completed.  Thc Koitenay Valley railwaw bridge  across'the Kootenay river is completed  and the draw was swung for thc first  time Thursday last. Tho draw will,  however, remain open until the road is  ready forl use. Four sub-contractors  have already completed their grading  work .and are moving their grading  material away. All grading'will practically be completed by July 1st, unless the' Kootenay riyer should over-  How its banks and remove a great deal  of the filling..  ton and Sandon, resulting .in a 5 to 0  defeat for the visitors. At tho close of  the game an adjournment was made to  the wharf to meet the boat returning  from Slocan City, with a reinforcement of visitors and the band from  the lake city, which latter very ma'cr-  ially aided iu enlivening the days' proceedings. The sports were all held on  the main street so that the visitors did  not have, as is usual, a wearying time  tramping around, hut oould mostly enjoy tho clay seated on the balconies of  the various hotels. Silverton people  seem to have to happy faculty of knowing how to treat visitors, as'many expressed themselves on their return. A  slight squall came up shortly before  G p.m., the time for the return"for Sandon, which slightly disturbed the even  tenor of events making the day's closing rather unceremonious. Alter a  short delay thc-boat pulled out carrying lioine a well-pleased lot of holiday ers.  We   understand   that   New Denver j  had   also  a   successful day  of sports I  with   a   good   attendance of visitors,  mostly'from Nelson.  The following arc the prize winners  at Silverton as frir as obtained at thc  time: '  COMMUNICATION.  The Northern Light mineral claim  on l^orty Nine creek is to be sold by  the sheriif for -:840 and costs. One  Wright owned it and owed wages to  this amount when ho sold to the Rain  Prospects Gold Mining Co. They p������iid  over the money to Wright but he  failed to pay the men, and they are  selling under a lein.  A CHINESE REFORMER.  Kang  Yu Wei,   a   Notable   Chinaman,  and  Party in Montreal.  The Montreal Star gives the following on the visit of some distinguished  '. Chinese in that city, a short time ago :  "One of the most notable of Chinese  reformers of .the present day arrived in  the city last night in the person of His  Excellency Kang Yung Wei, the friend  of, and, for a short time, foreign adviser to, the Emperor of China. He  was accompanied by Claude Ley Kum,  foreign secretary; Loo Gee Wing,  Chinese secretary and interpreter, and  Mr. J. H. Hefferman, of the Canadian  Mounted Police.  "Kang Y Wei is, on his way to London, where he will discuss matters of  interest to China and the British Empire with the Marquis of Salisbury.   ,  The Fhzsimmons-Jeflnes Fight.  New York, May 23.���������Thc Fitzsim-  mons-Jeffries fight will take place on  the night ���������instead ofthe afteruonn of  June 9th. The direetbrs of'the Coney  Island Sporting Club held a meeting  last night and decided on this change.  Mr. Brady said titty-three boxes had  been sold, tho total sum paid for them  being ������7,950. Frank Dwyer received  #5,000 to bet for thejwesterners on Fitz-  siriimons at odds of 8 to 5.

To tho Editor of the "Mining Review :  Dear Sir,���������That tho electors of the  Slocan Riding may not take for truth  low insinuatipns and rumor industriously spread by people who would be  much better employed in attending to  their own business, instead of talking  about matters they ,-ire igiioiani, of; is  my excuse for trespassing upon your  space.  Referring to an article appearing in  the Kootenaiau of May 18th, in which  it quotes some insinuations and street  rumor* as to what our member, Mr.  Green, did at Sandon. I, as one who  was there, wish to say that the meet  ing. which Mr. Green attended by invitation, was neither secret nor semi-  sccret. as for an hour or so previous to  the meeting small ooys paraded' the  town with bells announcing the meeting and inviting all miners, whether  union or otherwise. The meeting was  composed of union and non-union  miners, business men,, and, in fact,  some of the city fathers were there.  Mr. Green, after hearing tlie views of  the meeting on the eight-hour clause;  Tlie Madison Sold.  The Madison group of four claims,  lying just south ofthe Last Chance,  was sold on Wednesday to the Slocan  Sovereign Mining Co., of Montreal, for  ������20,000, and the most of thc money, if  not all, h-.s been paid over. Mr. J. C.  Eaton, the late owner, is a fortunate  man. lie made one fortune out of the  Whitewater and this is the secotid  lucky hit in the Slocan. The Madison  is sure to be a profitable mine and the  new company have a, bargain. We  understand that Mr. Warner is likely  to continue as manager.  CHURCH    NOTES.  told   those assembled very distinctly  that he would lay their views,  as they  had expressed them,; before the executive, but they were not necessarily his  views.   He said that the views of the  mine owners  had been laid before the  cabinet and he   would see that  their  views were put upon the same level.  Mr. Greon also told the meeting that  when the question first came up in the  mining committee he opposed  it, and  that he afterwards   in  the House in  common with all the other members  present voted for it.   He gave his reasons for his course in both cases which  were   quite  satisfactory to those   assembled.   I am of the opinion that our  member is quite competent to defend  his course in the House, or upon the  platforms   of our constituency at anytime it becomes necessary, hut I cannot see him maligned without putting  the publican possession of the facts.

'Beneath .��������� tho  clear, dark skin, which,had been oiled  and rubbed until it glistened like burnished copper,, and stretched like rubber, one could soo the play of tho  powerful   musoIes. ���������' " ������  Pembroke loaned ovor to Eviston.  "Gad!" ho said' excitedly. "Look at  the tallest chap. Look at thoso  muscles over tho shoulders and in .Hie*  back. If he had boon a,Trinity College  mm last year, I rather think we'd  h-ive  won."  "lies my', favorite," put in-; Carlington; "'I'll back him to see the dance  through. I've seen him before; his  name is White Eagle, and he s a fine  Indian." .,.,���������.'���������'  "They all look game," remarked  Stirling; "they must be,, the pick of  the tribe. The one with' the red brow-  band looks wicked) though. I rather-  hope tho torture will be a little too  o   ,   much for him."  The;   three    Indians    were    moving  noiselessly   around   the'/ring,, keeping  perfoct time with one another as thev  raised   and   lowered   the   foot   with  ���������  double blow on  the ground, showi!  their intense excitement only by thei  flashing eyes aud tho  quick, nervouo  movement  of  their  limbs.   Six  medicine-men arose slowly, two approaching  each of the three Indians.   They stood  for a moment muttering some incantation, and then motioned  the young  Indians  to.lie   down  on   the  ground.  They, then stationed themselves on,.the  right and the left; .of each, and began  gently  to rub  the heaving, chests. It  was like the oven; practised work of  a  good masseur, only     there was no  varying of the stroko or position. The  spot on each breast that they kneaded  and rubbed could not bo larger than  a silver dollar.   As they worked, the  Indian    with  the    tomr-tom  began  to  boat again, but, very 'softly, and there  ran ,a subdued,  sympathetic, murmur  through the crowd.   .'From out on'the  prairie one could hear now and then  the short, fierce whinny of a bronco,  and   the sun  beat down on  the pine  boughs more hotly than ever, and they  gave forth a faint/refreshing odor.  Captain Eviston turned uneasily  to  the women.   . ���������  "You'll be "awfully sorry you came  In    about ' a minute,"    he   remarked.  "Perhaps you had better not  look���������"  lie  might  as  well1 have spoken  to  alone    walls,   ffho    eyes of  tho  girls  were fastened on tho prostrate Indians  *s  though  held    there) by a magnet,  i>    and their breath came  in quick,  uneven  gasps.   They  did not   even  hear  him.   So he turned again to look, and  rs he did so ,(he saw the medicine men  iraw   from    their   bags,sharp    little  knives    like    scalpels,  and  make  two  parallel,   incisions in    eachi benumbed  breast;   Not    a drop of    blood issued  from' the wounds, and the sinews thus  laid    bare    wore drawn' out carefully  ,  und    skilfully,    and    short    pieces of  wood    passed  beneath    them,   to, each,  end  of which a  lariat was tied.   The  medicine-men   then   took  each   Indian  by  the shoulders  and. helped him to  his ��������� feet.   As   the      young       Indians  itood , upright,    faoing   the    excited,  restless throng, they gavo one trium-  *phant,  scornful  look about,  and  then  taoved ; forward  until  eachJ, had  taken  ap    a position ' beneath! a cross-beam,  wd    about    equally distant, from one  another,   So far they did not seem to  be at all affected; by the torture, ox-  eepl that the pupils, of their eyes had  contracted to pin-points, and there was  ������. peculiar rigidity about, their limbs.  They  were  the  picture   of  proud  unconcern while the lariats'were  being  thrown,   over    the    cross-beams    and  fastened    there,    and    they    put  the  Bhrill little whistles, .which they were  to  blow while   they  danced,  to  their  mouths with as much  indifference as  though they had been cigarettes. When  all  was ready,  and  the medicine-men  ,.  had  stepped back, suddenly ' the  tomtoms burst but with, a terrific rattle;  the    young  Indians    began   to   dance  . back and  forth  at  the  ends  of   their  lariats,'.with long, sweeping lunges, as  though   they  would  quickly   tear   the  sinews from thoir breasts;.tho whistles  shrieked, the masses of Indians'broke  Into  a  wild  shouting,   and  the  medicine-men, lifting up thoir hands, prayed  aloud to the Great Manito.   A sort of  frenzy    seemed   to    communicate   its-  self to every-Indian in lhe lodge. Their  faces  turned  ashy,  and  thoir muscles  quivered  as  if  they  were  undergoing  some    intenso    physical    strain.    Tho  restless    (heels   boat,    the    ground   in  double    throbs that    shook the whole  tepee.    Tho. swarthy    faces,    which an  hour   before, had   been   only   vacantly  good-natured or sullen or stocial, were  now full of passion and wildness.    An  Indian  beside  Bliss  Pago  sprang  into  the  nlr  as  though  some  devil., within  him    had    broken   loose.   Tho young  girl shrank back faintly  toward Pembroke,   who  was   slightly   behind   her.  The  men  had put   the  women  in   the  center, and was trying to protect them,  from, the crowd of Indians pressing in  on  all sides; but   it was quite impossible to make them keep back of appeal  to them in any way.  '    "This   is  awful;   it  must   be  worse  than a'prize-fight," the young girl said,  wit a' an  unsteady little smila  at  the  Englishman.  Pembroke smiled back sympathetically and looked over at his sisters j  anxiously. Being English' girls, they  were, taking things calmly, though  there was' a hot spot of red in each  cheek, and their blue eyes looked almost black from th'e intensity of their  excitement.   ,  i Suddenly the Indian " candidate"  !nearest ttem dropped his whistle, and  'with a low groan fell forward on his  face in a dead faint. H'is attendant medicine-men  sprang    forward,  released  the lariats, and pulling ' tho thongs  from the sinews, spit upon his chost,  rubbing tho wounds,/and murmuring  incantations ovor him,- After a long  time ho slowly opened his eyes. When  full (kmsciiouBuoss returned to Mm and  no realized that ho had failed in the ordeal, ho sprang to his feet in a frenzy  of disappointment and rage. As his  eyes fell upon the little group of white  people opposite him, a'���������'wilder gleam of  anger lighted , up his face, and pointing a shaking finger at them, he  shrieked out some imprecation. As he  staggered backward, tho medicinemen grappled with him and bore him  panting and shouting from the ring.  Captain Eviston turned to Doyle.  " What did that' Indian say, Doyle?;/  he  asked,  quietly. .������������������'.',".���������'.  Tho orderly was . lugging at his  gloves and looking very uncomfortable. -.';';"���������,.".

"Stay by us and translate all thoy  say," commanded the officer, calmly.  Throughout 'this episode; the tom-  'oms and shoutings had not ceased for  moment, nor had the other two danc-  ->rs stopped an instant in their frantio  attempts to break their sinews and so  bo proclaimed "braves." They leaped  and swung from side to side, keeping  time with the beat of the: drum, while  the musicians sang "The Song of the  Brave:"  I sing, L sing under, the center of the  sky,  Under  tho  center of the sky;  Under the center of tho sky I sing,  Under  tho center of the sky;  The    birds  of   the   bravo    take  flight  around the sky,  A flight around tho sky;  The birds of  the brave  take  a flight,  tako  a flight,  The birds of tiio- brave tuke a flight.  fixed scowlingly or threateningly upon him and his guests. There was a  suppressed oxoiteinont and antagonism  about them/ which would have been  sufficiently unpleasant if he had been  there with fifty good privates at his  back. As it was, th'e absolute hopelessness of his situation made him perfectly cool. Pour men and an orderly with' seven womon to take caro of  could not hope to contend successfully  against five hundred maddened ��������� Indians. ,  While Yellow Wolf still lay moaning and struggling on the ground, an  old chief seated1' near him, and who  had heard what ho had said, arose, and  spreading out his hands toward, him,  began to speak soothingly, as if to a  child.  Captain Eviston recognized him as  Pretty Feathers, one of tho friendliest and most sagacious of the Pei-  gans.  ( "My son,    said the old man, softly,  "arise;, ber comforted.  Cease thy  coin-  plaints-^lhe complaints of a child who  knows   not how  to  take  punishment.  Why. shouldst  thou  think  the  Manito  of the white man has  intorforod with  thy  destiny f" His  the  Manito  of   the  Indian  never visited thee before with  his displeasure V  He turned to the rest  of the Indians, who were listening, and  raising,his voice, cried. '"Yellow Wolf  has spoken words of foolishness in his  anger. Let us forget them, as ho will  forget   them,   and���������"significantly���������"as  the white, man will forget  them."  _ There was a , murmur of disapprobation as he seated himself, but many of  the Indians looked less aggressive, and  many once moro turned their, attention  to   tho   circle  where   the   last   Indian,  White Eagle, still danced.   He was al  most  spent,   and  lhe quavering,   faint  notes   of  his   whistle   told   how   little  breath' and, life were still  in him. His  face  was gray-white;1 and  a light  froth  flecked his lips. His body was covered  with1   blood   and   great   drops   of   perspiration,  and  h'is lower limbs;'which  Wad   at   first   been  unnaturally   rigid,  now bent and twisted and doubled under  him as  he leaped back and forth.',, It was  evident   th'at   unless   the   sinews7 soon  burst  he  would  faint  from   pain  and  loss of blood, and all h'is agony would  count   for  nothing.  Suddenly a young and pretty squaw  sprang up from th'e mass of Indian  women crouching near the edge of the  BRITISH MEDICAL FORTUNES.

Tho sweat was running down their rigid bodies like rain,  and their sinews were pulling far out  from tlio panting chests and snapping  back again in a horrible way, as tho  agony made them givo to the lariats-  Miss Kenwood covered her face with  her handkerchief and began lo cry  softly.. .The men.moved restlessly and  cast anxious glances at one another  and the women. Stirling put an arm  around his wife.  "1 suppose it's impossible tp get out  of this," he ventured.  Captain Eviston shook his head.  "Quite    impossible,"    he     returned  grimly. '.".'���������'  He had hardly spoken when, with a  cry  of mingled  . fear  and rage,     the  evil-looking Indian with, tho red brow-  band bounded forward from the other  sido of tho   opening   and held up the  broken ends of his lariat..    The rope  had parted���������-the worst medioine    that  could   happen   to    an Indian.       The  medicino-inen,  terror-stricken sank  to  their, knees but the young, brave stood  up defiantly, although ho reeled from  faintness.   Staggering across the open  space with his broken, lariat dragging  after  him, he paused on  the  edge  of  the circle, just below the little party  of..whites,    and    turning his    back to  them,  he  began   to  harangue   the  Indians.     Ho looked like some devil as  he stood there, his wicked face bedaubed   with   paint and   showing ghastly,  oven under the red, with agony    and  Wild'rage, his  bloodshot  eyes  rolling  from side  to side,  his  breast  crimson  with tho blood that now flowed freely  from   tho    iaoerated  flesh,    and     the  quivering nostrils and upper lip telling  even better than his words the wrath  that alone.was keeping his trembling  limbs from sinking  under him.      His  voice,  in  spite  of his faintness,     was  ! strong enough to   make   itself heard  'above the din by thoso nearest him.V  "I Yellow  Wolf, am brave and fearless," ho shouted; "I do hot fear death  or any kind of torture; but who   can  prevail against evil i>owers, that come  no ono knows whouoo ?     Our medicinemen are powerful, and they have propitiated the Manito of the Indian, but  they    had    not     thought     to   propi-  itato     tho     Manito     of     the     white  inan.

" What does he say, Doylo ?" demanded Captain Eviston onco more.  Doyle, looking more unhappy than  ever, translated freely, shifting himself uneasily from one foot to the other.  " E says, sir, that we 'ave 'oodooed  'im, same as the bother Hindian, an'  that  we nought n't to be 'ere."  Captain Eviston looked thoughtfully  before bin a. moment, regretting most  keenly, ttte feeling of delicacy which  had prompted him to come unarmed to  the dance. He had thought that such  a course would appeal to tblo Indians.  Unfortunately, they had apparently  not noticed or appreciated th'at piece  of refined sentiment. He aroused him-:  self from his little reverie to find the  eyes  of all  the Indians in  the  tepee j  with' all the strength of her young  body against Wh'ito Eaxrle, forced him  back until:the sinews of his chest snapped Hke'"w1rip-cords. and with a groan  h'o toppled* over backward.  (To bo Continued.) u  A Few  PlijHlctaii.s Aro ttlcli,  Jiut Almost  All or Them l>lu Poor;  The large fortune left by Sir William Jenner has led to much writing  in life lay press, but owing to imperfect, information as to the source of  some of Sir'"William Jeriner's wealth  much1 excellent moralizing has been  made upon unsound deductions, says  th-o Lancet. Sir William Jenner was  for many years at the, top :bf the'inod-  ical profession, h'aving risen there by  his genius, and, having been maintained there by scientific acclamation every wh'it as much as by popular favor.  During these years ho undoubtedly  made a very largo-income,, but not an  income that would have enabled him  to save' such' a sum as ������375,000, and, as  a matter of fact, a certain portion of  his fortune was derived from trade and  bequeathed to" him by a brother. But  undoubtedly Sir William Jonnier earned a great sum of money by the practice of his profession and the fact may  legitimately aol as a stimulus to  young medical men to observe keenly  and work '.hard'.  That a few medical men have made  large fortunet. is well known. For instance Sir Andrew Clark left ������203,-  070, Sir'Oicar Clay ion left ������1-10,740.  Dr. Rhodes Armiiago left ������217,420, Dr.  L. T. CumborbaLch loll ������107,000, Sir  Richard yuain loft ������1������G,820, Mr. Henry Horslail left ������l(K>,7bO, , Dr. G. D.

But all these lortunes  several of which were certainly inherited and not made by professional practice, are thrown inLu tho.shade by tho  estate of Sir William. Gull, wh./SO personalty was valued at ������314,023. Sir  William Gull,. like Sir William Jenner,  made an enormous professional income  though fortunate investments, perhaps/ played tho part in swelling tho  total of h'is fortune that family bequests played in th'e case of Sir William Jenner.

Our attention was lately directed to  tho   wonderful   cure    effected upon a  resident   of    Deseronto,   which   illustrates in a Very marked way the merits of that widely known health restorer "Dr. Williams' Pink Pills.'*   We refer  to  the cure  of, Mrs^ Druce, wife , of  Sidney Druce,  caretaker. of  tho High  School   building.      Being  desirous   of  giving our readers the,facts, a reporter  of thd Tribune called at Mrs. Druce'a  residence, arid is therefore enabled ��������� to"  present our readers, with the following  facts,   which   can  be   vouched for ,by  manj   neighbors    and  friends of    the  family.       Mrs. Druco  had   from    the  early age of ten years been a sufferer  fromi rheumatism and had endured an  untold amount of suffering from' thfa  dire  disease; ; She  had  tried scores of  different medicines to dispel the mal-  'ady   but in  vain.   Doctors told her it  was impossible to eradicate the disease  from her system and she had at  last '  become'  resigned   to   the   belief   that  rheumatism . was   incurable.      In addition' to    rheumatism,    about  seven'  years ago she   began  to suffer    frcra  catarrh of the bowels with its attendant headaches and depression of spirits.  Tho pain of  the rheumatism and constant headaches  wore   her   out.     The  doctors prescribed opiates which only  dulled the pain, but did not repel tho  disease.   -The  two  diseases continued  to m.ike steady headway and at times  she felt such pain that sho could not  even  allow  her.husband   to   raise, or  move her.   The neighbors thought she  would never get up again. ��������� All kinds  of remedies were suggested and many  of them tried, but all in vain.     Providentially, as Mrs.  Druce  expressed it,  the use of Dr. Williams' Pink Pills was "  tmnntioned.     It was not until the end  of the second box that she realized any  bonefii.     She then  began    to    realize  that ihe was regaining    strength. Bo-  THE KAISER OBJECTS.-  The Great Young Man of Germany,  as they call the enterprising and pyrotechnic Kaiser, while poking his imperial finger into'every art and every  science, still finds time, the court scandal mongers say, to pay strict attention to the wardrobe and toilet of tho  Empress,    his  wife.  Tho Empress is but human, and when  she saw silver threads-making their  appearance in' her hair she most naturally tried to defer the inevitable  ^and dyed, it is said. Whether she  put on too much, or whatever the reason was, certain it is that one morning the < poor Empress appeared at  breakfast with stripes of doubtful  green  among her  tresses.  " You have put some rubbish on  your head, Augusta,;' cried Wilhelm,  with a great frown. " Where's the bottle V  The Empress muttered a' few words  and went on with' her breakfast, but  the ruler of minds and bodies got up,  rummaged ,his wife's dressing room, to  the distress of the maids, who were  busy putting things in order, and, observing that one of them tried to conceal a bottle, he snatched it from her  and put it in his pocket. Nothing more  was said on the subject to tho Empress  but the Perfiimer-in-Ordinary to their  Majesties lost his exalted patron, and  poor Augusta's head remainod harle-  quined for a month.  The same fate befell a later importation 'from Paris, and at last the Empress, who detested a motley head as  much as. the Kaisef does hair dye,,got  anew preparation to blanch hor- hair  an even color, and from that day the  Empress appeared completely whito,  and even poudree. Her fancy now, in  which, however, she cannot always indulge, is to wear pure whito garments  or pale gray ones, which suit her well,  and make her look very picturesque.  However, Wilholml loves pink, blue  and groen, and sho must comply with  his wishes and order colored dresses.  Daily Telegraph and the Westminster | fore fib(i montioned this to others  Gazette and cover a period extending j ber husband also observed the change,  over the last ton years.  On tho strength of them tho medical profession cannot be said to abound  in pecuniary prizos. Only eleven persons, whether shining in the'front rank  of the medioal profession, or engaged  in ,ono of its notoriously lucrative  branches, or blessed by accident with  pecuniary advantages, have died during ten years in possession of moro  ttor, ������100,000, while a first-class brewer's fortune would be expeoted to  amount, to.inore: than tho aggregate to-  tal of the eleven medioal fortunes or  the brewer would be .accounted a comparative failure. We are not setting  up a wail th'.it medical men do not  make more money, but the fortune of  Sir William Jenner or Sir Willaim  Gull ought not to lead the public; to  mistake the facts as to the average  earnings of th'e medical profession. Tho  profession in Great Britain numbers  some 28,000 persons,'and although now  and again one man dies rich' tho vast  majority die  otherwise.  FINGER-PRINT. TESTS.  .ODD FUPiNITUBE.  Perhaps.tho oddest suit of furniture  is owned by Joseph Berger, a hotel  keeper in Budapest. : For many years  he has made it his business to collect  matchboxes from factories of various  countries. His collection aggregates  4,001) boxes. H'o ordered a skilled cabinet maker to equip ti roorn with furniture made of these b:>:ces. . The outfit consists of, a writing .table with  smoking apparatus, a firo screen, a  cabinet, a chair and other smaller  articles. Though the boxes are  empty* they are adjusted so ingeniously  that tho pieces are: fully as strong as  the ordinary furniture.  SHE HAS A HOBBY.  A woman who has a perfect horror  of handling dirty money asserts that  she not only has all her silver washed,  but her bills as well. They are put in  a basin of luke-warm soapsuds, rubbed  gently, and dried by pressing with a  warm iron. In this way sho is always  supplied with bright silver and  crisp now bills, that sho can carry in  her pocket with do danger of contracting  disease n   their handling.  Tlie .MeiUoil MlM-ussed in Novels of Itlenli  TyliiK ('I'linliml.s.  In detective novels lingor-printsleft  by criminals, preferably in blood, play  an important part; but truth seems  stranger than fiction in the fact that  the finger-prints system of, identifying  criminals in India has been made so  perfect that it would enable any intelligent person in a few minutes to' distinguish the individual, if necessary,  from all other persons now living in  tho world, or, if data were available,  from all other persons wbo have' lived  since the creation of man.' ' The, system is simplicity itself, and there is  none' of the. elaboration of .process of  the cosily and delicate machinery required for the anihropomatiic system.  Alt that is needed is apiece of-vin, a  sheet of paper and some printer's ink.

It is  calculated that the chances are about  04,000,0000 to 1 against any two persons having single, fingers identical  and the chances against all ten fin-  gors being identical, go beyond mathematics altogether.  LONG LIVED BALLET DANCERS.  A statistician has been devoting himself to a study of ballet dancers, and  his investigation seems to establish the  fact that they are an unusually long-  lived lot. Tho famous Carlotta Grisi  is Hiving now at the age of 77, and  one of the ballet dancers at the Opera  in Paris, is 70,.but he is a man. Ama-  lia Ferraris ' is still teaching at the  age of 78, in Paris, and seems likely  to continue that work for some time  to come, Fanny Ellsler was 74 when  she died, and Taglioni has passed her  eightieth year. Rosita Mauri, the  popular premiere at the Opera in Paris,  is: oyer 50, and has begun to talk of  retiring. i  for he remarked one day" "those, pilla  ore doing you some good, you look  livelier ihan you have for soma  tim<5." She continued the use of Dr.  Williams' Pink Pills until she' ���������'���������' had  taken fourteen boxes, with the gratifying and almost remarkable results  that she was completely cured oil the  rheumatism and catarrh, not a solitary  symptom of either trouble remaining.  Mr. Druce wasi present during tho interview and confirmed all that his wife  had said and Svas as .delighted as she  in praising tho virtues of Dr..Williams'  Pink Pills. Mrs. Druca said that out  of grali;ude for this wonderful restoration to health she had told scores of  other sufferers from different diseases  of tho virtues of the medicine 'which'  had been ihe undoubted means of prolonging her life.' She hoped that .others  would follow hor. plan of giving, the  pills a.fair and prolonged trial as she  was confident that in the end success  would surely follow as in her own  case. ���������.��������� ������������������ ' ��������� ���������!  WHIP AGAINST'SWORD.  Hoi  How  a  .Plucky ...Woim-iil    Prevented  ttusbiiiid'.s .tFsasslu.HJon.  The Civil and Military Gazette, published  at  Alhthabad,   contains  an   exciting account of tho manner in which  a plucky woman saved herself and her  husband against the attack.of a Ghazi.  As Captain and Mrs. Spence were out  driving    slowly  they   ; saw  a    Brahui  mounted    on    a Balueh    racing "inaro  coming  toward them  at a walk.      As  the    man    approached he \\  drew'   hia'  sword  and    made  a vigorous  cut    at  Captain  Spence,    who.  ou seeing    tho  naked sword, .instantly stood "-'up and  lashed ;j(t the Ghazi with  the  driving  whip, causing the mare to swerve and  (The sword to pass harmlessly by, but  uncomfortably close io Captain Spsnce's  head.     At this instant Captain Spence  lost  his  balance    and fell   under   the  wheel of the trap, where ho lay pinned,  down for some time.   . Seeing her husband in the act of falling Mrs. Spence  seized  the    whip' from  his  hand . :ind  jumped to the ground.   , By this timo  tho Ghazi'had wheeled on.tho road and  was    making    another    rush.        Mrs.  Spence.  instantly stood    betweon    her  husband  and the man,  and  there  received'the    Ghazi's    attack,  whip    in  hand, cutting at him and his mare and  calling out for help.     liy making vigorous  use of j.er whip she  kept    the  Ghazi   off and drove    him  away.   ��������� A  second charge tho    G hazi    made    was  similarly repulsed, excopt  that on this  occasion   tho Ghazi's   cuts  came  more  perilously near, and Mrs. Spence was  knocked down.     By this timo Captain  Spence had extricated himself fx-om beneath tho wheel'of the trap, where he  sustained several bruises and a cracked rib, and camo, to his wifo's help, and  when  the Ghazi  made his  third  rush  he was driven off by Captain Spence,  when ho made off at a gallop, but the  pursuit was taken up and ho    was ultimately run down and shot.

African   natives  who have  lived    in  , ow-story hute show the greatest fear  of climbing stairs, and will sometimes  go up on hands and knees. Dogs often have to be trained to climb'stairs.  instinctively distrusting the upper  stories. It has been conjectured that  tbu is because the dog's forelegs break.  , easily below the shoulder, and ��������� the  beast seems to realize this. The fox  has no such fear, and has been known  to climb a tree with' plenty   of  small  .limbs to th'e height of seventeen feet,  Swimming comes easier than climbing to most animals, as well , as to  many races of men. Rats and guinea  pigH can swim well and climb not at  all,  although their cousins,  the squir-  ' rels,  are at home in  the  trees.  Prairie dogs, which live in plains  and have no use for climbing, can be  taught the trick, but when thoy try  to jump from a height they usually  fall on th'eir heavy, stupid heads, and  ���������e: 'iher  stun  themselves or break their  ��������� teeth1. They lack the inherited instinct that should teach them what  car. and what cannot be done. Australian rabbits of the same family of  rodents, can climb very well, having  lived  forcgenerations  in  forests.  Bears can climb well if little, but  the grizzly and other large species stay  mainly on the ground. A bear always  climbs down a tree stern foremost, as  does   the   domestio   cat  until   she   has  .nearly reached the ground, when she  turns and jumps; but most wild cats  run down a trunk head first, even the  heavy leopard being a more skilful  climber than the light house cat. The  tiger and lion, however, do not climb,  for no discoverable reason except thtt  they fear falling on account of their  weight.               .  I  NEWEST WORD IN FLANDERS.  Euphonious Term by Which Horseless Cnr-  rln&e Is Known.  Some new words have necessarily  beeii added to the English language  sinco. the introduction of the horseless carriage, and the vocabularies of  other tongues have also naturally been  similarly enriched in all countries  where such carriages have become popular.  With few exceptions, all these words,  jre technical and their true significance is only understood by the electrician and the machinist. The members of the Flemish academy of Anvers  recently determined to frame a ward  which would be readily intelligible, to  all who understand the language of  Flanders and who had ever seen a  horseless carriage, and the result was  that after much deep thought they  framed  the following word:  " Snelpaardelooszonderspoorwegpet-  rolrijtuig."  This ouphonius word signifies "a carriage which is worked by means of petroleum, which travels fast, which has  no horses, and which is not run ,on  rails." That is, from one point of view  a fine example of multum in parvo, but  'it may be questioned whether one extraordinary long word is preferable to  half a dozen short words. The Flemish  people, however, think differently, and  the. academicians of Anvers have been  highly complimented by them on their  linguistic skill as seen in this unique  word.

Toronto, May 8.���������Still another member of the staff of the Toronto Street  Railway comes forward to testify to the  unequalled efficacy of Dodd's Kidney  Pills, in cases of Diabetes. This time  It is Mr. H. Hogg, Conductor No. 207,  residing at No. 81 Fuller St., who tells  his story.  Here is what he says: "Diabetes kept  me in continual misery,, and nightly  agony for- three years. My blood got  bo impure that I thought I could never  ret it, restored to its natural' purity,  was tortured by dizziness, which  grew to such an extent that I had to  quit work. I lost flesh and strength  rapidly, and, in short, 1 thought it  was 'all up with me.'

"I had no idcia they would help me,  as I had been disappointed so often,  but I decided to try them. The first  box gave me wonderful relief.., Tho  dizziness vanished, and my head became as steady,as ever it was. Three  boxes completed my cure, and to-day  I am sound and well, thanks to Dodd's  Kidney Pills."  The best way to ascertain the real  merit of Dodd's Kidney Pills is to test  them. There can he no deceit then.  They either will cure, or they will not.  A trial costs very little, and it will  settle all doubts for all time. ,  ��������� Dodd's Kidney Pills are sold by all  druggists, at fifty cents a box, six  boxes $2.50, or sent, on~receipt of price,  by The Dodds Medicine Co., Limited;  {Toronto, Ont.  tr  "c?{ecessity  Knows No Laxv.

IS THAT SO?  "It is currently reported   that   our  member, R. F. Green, Esq., when   at  Sandon, on.nis   way to Victoria,   attended a semi-secret meeting at which  he informed those present that he voted  for the eight-hour day law, that he favored it, and that he would use liis influence with the govirnment t������ have  it enforced. ' Jt is  also commonly  remarked thai Lhe decision of (he  government  to enforce it was coincident  with 31r. Green's arrival at the capital.  We   j  nt this, for general information,  as        think a  member' sconslitutonts  ���������ho j'd know fromsome source what the  sta , ��������� of the member is upon import-  an ; questions.   JI goes without saying  th     our columns are open for the con-  tr    iction, confirmation or ainpliflca-  sion of these rumors or snrmises."  Thc Kaslo Kootenaian  has lhe foregoing.    On a certain occasion an Irish  jury,  on hearing the evidence of . the  ^prosecution, sentenced tbe prisoner to  be hanged, intimating that'they would  listen   to the other side   of   the case  afterwards.   After listening to what is  ,   "currently reported"   and "commonly  ���������.remarked"  our contemporary   asserts  that Mr. Green attended a "semi-secret  meeting," which, by the way, was  attended  by a couple of dozen non-miners, and there declared "he would use  his influence with the government" to  have thc eight-hour law enforced.   "It  is also commonly remarked"   by  our  neighbor again "that,  the decision of  the government to enforce it (the law)  was coincident with   Mr. Green's   arrival  at the capital,"  and,   therefore,  "we print this for general information,  etc."  We understand .that the chief in-  spirer of, the Kootenaian is a local  " preacher, and if he gives as facts from  the pulpit, and his audiences accept  them, what is "currently reported" and  "commonly remarked" all we have to  say God help their credulity. How  much better it would be, and more in  line with an orthodox sermon at least,  if before announcing a thing for "general information"he would first verrify  what is "commonly remarked" and  currently reported." In Bhort, if our  neighbor's "general information" were  got on other foundations, there would  be something more substantial for  "contradiction" in "our columns."  The Yankee said he "never kicked at  nothin' for it strained him so." It  would strain Mr. Green very badly���������  even in thc columns of the Kootenaian  ���������to "contradict" the truth there is in  this chain ef insinuations. ��������� A correspondent in'other columns puts the  matter fight, and if the Kootenaian is  as de&irous of publishing facts as it is  fancies, when the reputation of an opponent is at stake, it will copy the  article. All we have to say is that Mr.  Green did not attend a "semi-secret  meeting" at Sandon ; he did not say, he  would use his influence with the government to have the act enforced." He  merely told the miners he would tell  the government what they7 requested  him to tell, and he kept his word. It  may have been coincident with Mr.  Green's visit that the government  came to. the conclusion they did; but  the one had just as much to do with  ���������the other as the Kootenaian's truth  had with the success of Mr. Retallack  .at the last election, though they were  concident. '  property is tlie best time to buy. Its  price is not then fabulous, and whatever is in it is there���������it has not been  mined out to any substantial extent.  If a mine' bought at a fabuloHS price  gives out before thc purchasers are  satisfied with their realizations, thc  owners should not blame the country,  but themselves for not making their  purchase earlier, when the price was  lower and thc quantity of ore much  greater.  While   the   mine owners   and   thc  miners are arranging their differences,  it would not bo out of place if  a more  general insistence on the terms of the  Truck Act were observed.   There arc  many instances where they could  not  be enforced with any advantage to the  men���������where   the   mines   are   far   removed from the villages and towns ���������  but   there are, so many  instances  in  which they could be observed to advantage, a trial should  be made.   A  miner can keep his family when near  him on less  than when they are away  from him; and he can live on much  less when with them than   he pays' at  the bunk houses.   Besides all this, tho  towns,whose mineral surroundings are  keeping up tlie operations, are���������entitled  to a distribution of thc expenditures  made   by families away.     With   the  families of the man icd miners working here resident, we would have more  stores and better ones, better schools,  and,  in fact, better everything of the  kind,  which is   our due.     In   many  cases the owners of the mines reside i.t  distances, and, while they are getting  wealthy en large dividends, the towns,  whose resources are making them rich,  are not  receiving   the proper   return  consideration.  The location of miners'  families here,  and  the men boarding  with them would be of great service to  the entire community.  union has never yet expressed itself  officially on the subject, whatever stray  men may have done on their own account. Nearly all agree that a $3.00  camp is not best for the country ; that  eight hours' steady work is a long pull;'  but no sensible man can defend an  Act that prevents' miners and owners  from making arrangements that best  serve the interests of both.

In  While the sale of the Payne mine to  Canadian capitalists has done much to  biing the Slocan into notice, it is a  question after all whether such incidents will prove of substantial advantage to the district.   There is, of course,  an end to all things earthly, and there  must be one to the production of any  given mine, even the Payne.   A farm  pretty  well run out may be brought  back into a fair producing condition  by fertilizers and cultivation', but it is  not so with mines.   Minerals do not  grow in mines, at least, not sufficiently  quick to be of service to any living  mining company.   When  the area1 of  the Payne is mined and to the depth  that operatives can go,  there will, of  course, bean end to the production and  the value' of the property.   That end:  must come some clay,and whether it be  before or after the   new Canadian Co.  get their money,   with good interest,  out of it is the question.   All this goes  to show one thing���������that it is not when  a mine is nt its best arid the price the  highest, that it is the best time to buy.  Generally speaking when ore has been  first   struck   in a   tunnel   of a, new  The Nelson Tribune does not think  it consistent for the Kootenay press to  say that we have the richest mines in  the world'and tint the mine owners  cannot afford to pay S3.50 for eight  hours work. Both statements may be  to a substantial extent absolutely true.  No one will deny that the Payne, the  Last Chance, -the Star, the Ruth, the  Queen Bess, thc Reco, the Ivanhoe, the  Idaho and many others in the Slocan  are the richest mines in the world and  can afford to pay the long price for the  short day's work. On the other hand  there are many poor men working  prospects that may turn out indifferent mines or absolute failures. Those  men cannot afford to have their work  cost them a cent more than it has in  the .-past.-...If .we;.'understand them  aright, the owners of the larger properties are' objecting to' the change  mainly on principle���������they say the  government should not have made  radical changes;in the law in favor of  the one side, without as fully consulting the other. They say also that a  law that destroys the. liberty of the  subject so far as to prevent men from  making contracts in the financial in-'  tercst of both was never conceived in  either reason or justice.  The Nelson Miner intimates that the  Miners' Union,, of Nelson, are settling  down to $3.00 for the eight hours ; that  a conference between owners.and men  is decided on to arrange matters on  that basis; that the Hall mines are  hiring that way,-and that representatives of the Sandon Miners' Union say  that the Sandon union will follow suit.  The Miner may have knowledge of  what is going on at Nelson, but wc  venture the opinion that the Sandon  Simple Measured Tlmt Prove Effective  a Cn.uo of Syncopo.  Fainting, or syncopo, is a temporary  loss of consciousness, ocourring with  tufeebled and rotarded action of the  fceart, as manifested by a slow aud almost imperceptible pulso, oxtremo pallor of tho face, especially tho lips, and  a coldness and lividityof tho bauds and  feet.  Tho attack of unconsciousness is generally preceded by a feeling of slight  nausoa, a swimming before the eyes,  noises in tbe ears, a fullness of the head  and an indescribable feeling of -"all  goneness,," of the extrome wretchedness  of which no one can have any idea who  has not experienced it in his own person.  The voices of those aronnd gradually  become indistinct, objects grow dim,  the breathing is oppressed, and finally  darkness closes in, tho muscles relax,  and the sufferer passes into that mysterious and awe inspiring state called unconsciousness, This lasts for a variable  period and then tho mind gradually re-  Bninos its supremacy, the patient oomiug  again into possession of his suspended  facaltios, like one raised from the dead  rather than like ono aroused from slumber.  In its essence tho act of fainting is  Inerely a symptom of anaemia of the  brain, with which is associated a great'  ly weakened action of the heart, both  dependent upon some usually disagreeable impression from without, such as  the sight of blood, an unpleasant or  very powerful odor, a sudden fright,  pain, oppressive heat of the atmosphere,  tbe roceipt of bad news, less often a  great and sudden joy, and tho like.  Young -women, people in delicate  health, tho nervous and sufferers from  heart disease are moro prone to syncope  than otbors, yet fainting may oocur in  the strongest mou from the effect of  slight cuuhua.  Were it not so familiar a sight a person in a faint would fill the bystanders  with terror, so closoly does the condition simulate death, but fortunutoly the  stato is one usually of short duration.  .The patient should'bo placed flat on  the baclc, with no pillow or support under the head. Those not in immodiate  attendance should keep at a distance,  and fresh air should be admitted freely.  The clothing should be loosened about  the neck and the waist, the face should  be fanned, and respiration should be  stimulated, by flipping a few drops of  cold water on the faco and ohest. Tho  bare chest and.arms may also bo slapped  with a wet towel. Smelling salts may  be held cautiously under the nose or a  few grains of pepper blown into the  nostrils. Any ordinary swoon should  quickly yield to these simple measures.  ���������Youth's Companion.  AND OTHER INVESTMENTS.  Every Representation Guaranteed.  A man who neglects his health is sailing  Ills crafl of life  in  dangerous seas.    lie  cannot too soon awaken to the fact that he  is imperiling  his   niost precious endowment.    All the wealth in the world, all the  power in tlie world, all the pleasure in tlie  world, all the ^love and poetry and music  and nobility citil beauty are but dust iu the  mouth of the man who has lost his health.  Keeping healthy means looking after the  disorders that ninety-nine men in a hundred neglect.   You cannot get the aveiage  every-day man to believe that indigestion  or biliousness, or eostiveuess or headache  or loss of sleep or appetite, or shakiness in  the morning and dullness through the day  amount to much anyway.    He will "pooh,  pooh"  at you,   until   some   morning  he  wakes up and   finds  himself sick abed  Then he will send for a doctor and find out  to his surprise that all these disorders have  been but the danger signals of a big malady  that has robbed him of his health, possibly  forever.    It may be consumption or nervous, prostration or malaria or rheumatism  or some blood or skin disease.    It matters  not, they all  have  their inception in the  same   neglected   disorders.     Dr.  Pierce's  Golden Medical  Discovery makes the appetite keen, the digestion perfect, the liver  active, the blood pure, the nerves steady  and gives sound and refreshing sleep.    It  is the great blood-maker and flesh-builder.  It cures 98 per cent, of all cases of consumption.    In fact bronchial, throat and  lung affections generally yield to it.

SCOTT & BOWNE, Chemists Toronto.  Bills   For   Killing   Criminals   That Were  Formerly Paid In Holland.  Edam, in Holland, whore; tho Dutch  cheese conies from, has a musouin of  local antiquities, and among tbe not  .least interesting of the exhibits aro the  accounts of tbe municipal execntionors  during the eighteenth century, says the  London Chronicle. Ono of thoso functionaries, by name Vogel,,presents a detailed bill dated Deo. 19, 1713, in whioh  he sets forth a claim for 0 florins for  one decapitation and 8 florins each for a  sword and winding shoot, with 3 florins  14 cents for a coffin for tbe decapitated  one. His chargo for hanging a criminal  was also 0 florins, -with the further addition of 8 florins for "cutting down  and impaling ditto." "Breaking a man  on tho wheel" was a costlier'luxury  and ran to 0 florins, whilo for "supplying nine new lashes for scourge" the  charge was 27 florins.  On the whole, however, Mr. Vogel  was a moderate man in his charges or  the value of human life went ijp a good  deal in the next 50 years, for in the no  lessoiroumstantial accounts of Johannes  Ka, prosented Aug. 1, 17G4, we have a  charge of 12 florins for "going on board  the Hans and preparing instruments of  torture, " with a like charge for "torturing one person. " But this must have  been for tho lesser torture only, as on  Aug. 80 the same Johannes sends in a  bill,for "torturing three persons at 75  florins a head"���������total, 225 florins,  while a few days later no loss thau 600  florins is charged for "hanging four  persons at 150 florins each," and for  "flogging two persons and burning a  third" he exacts 150 florins.

No one can be healthy with the kidneys  In a diseased or disordered state., The  poisonous Uric Acid which it is their  duty to filter out of the blood, is carried  into the system and produces Rheumatism, Headaches, Backaches and hun-  dreas of ills and ailments.  Any ono who has the slightest suspicion  that tlie kidneys are not acting right  should take Doau's Kidney Pills. They  are .the most effective kidrioy. remedy  known. Mr. Conrad. Beyer,- at E: K.  Snyder's Shoe Store, Berlin, Ont., bears  this out when he says:  ' 'Anyono suffering with klflney troubles  cannot dp,better than take Doau's Kidney Pills,.for they cured my, Wife who  has beeu afflicted with pain in the back  and other kidney troubles for a long  v.ime.

SOUPS.  Potato Soup.���������Possibly Lhis is ' the  , least expensive and the most quickly prepared. Pare and slice three of  four potatoes and cook in a very little  water. ��������� Put a quart of milk in a double boiler, or in a bnsin over an asbestos mat, that it may not scorch,  and add a tablespoonful of chopped  onion. Skim out tho potatoes when  soft, mash and rub through a colander;  blend half a tablespoonful of cornstarch with a littio melted butter,  cook two minutes, then stir it into  tho scalding milk, add the potato and  cook five minutes. Serve hot with  oroulons, small squares of bread browned in  a hot  oven.  Canned Tomatoes.���������Make a delicious  ,soup. Put a quart of canned or fresh1  ly-stewed tomatoes into a porcelain-  or granite saucepan ; add a teacupf ul  of boiling water, a teaspoonful of salt,  a ' tablesxwonf ul of granulated sugar,  and a slight dusting of white pepper.  In a'"'basin or small saucepan, heat a  tableyspoonful of butter very hot, do  no*- brown it; add a few slices of onion ; cook gently five minutes tlien add  a tablespoonful of cornstarch or Hour  mixed smoothly wiLh a liLLle cold water; stir and immediately pour in a  teacupful of boiling milk, and simmer  two or three minutes. Strain andserve  wUh crackers crisped in a' hot oven.  Mock Bisque Soup.���������Strain a pint of  canned or freshly-slewed tomatoes;  heal to boiling a quart of milk, as  ' directed for potato soup. Melt a tablespoonful of butter; pour in two teaspoonfuls of cornstarch blended with  half a leacupful of thick cream, stirring rapidly as you pour, and cook a  few minutes. Season with a scant teaspoonful of salt, a pinch of white pepper, and bits of butter, as if a rich soup  is desired. To be served with croutons  or crackers.  , Onion Soup.���������Melt a piece of butter  (ho size of an egg; slice into it a medium-sized onion, and fry a delicate  brown ; add lhr=>e gills of milk and one  of cream; season lo taste with pepper and celery salt. Split three or  four Boston crackers put in a tureen,  and over them strain the hot  milk.  Green Corn Soup.���������Into a. saucepan  put half a can of corn ; orush the kernels aa much as may bo; add a pint of  milk and half a pint of cream, and cook  ten minutes; meantime frying two  slices of onion in a little butter. Add  this, to the milk; thicken with flour  mads into a smooth paste with a little cold milk; season with salt and  pepper ; cook three minutes and strain.  .Soup from Lima Beans.���������Heat a pint  of fresh-cooked or canned beans, press  through a colander, add a quart ot  milk and a teacupf ul of cream, season  with a tablespoonful of butter and  the usual condiments, and simmer fif-  loen minutes Serve in soup plates, and  at each cover place a saucer of very  small  crackers.  Cream of Asparagus.���������Cut young tender stalks into inch lengths, boil until tender in water lo cover, and rub  through a sieve. Into a quart of hot  milk put a heaping tablespoonful of  bulter, add the asparagus pulp, two  tablespoonfuls of thick cream, and pour  over very thin slices of hard-boiled  eggs.  Cut finely a large bunch of celery,  cook soft in only water enough to  cover and rub through a coarse colander. Scald a pint of half milk and half  cream and add to the celery, also the  water in which it was boiled. Season  with whito pepper and silt, and slightly thicken with a little flour, blended  with melted butter. Serve with inch-  wide finger lengths of .delicately toasted  bread.  Never use butter that is in the least  off flavor. While pepper makes a more  delicate soup. If soups maigre are too  thick, they are not relished and (hey  lack body if too thin. Soups should be  served very hot. The ' tureen should  first be heated; this may be done by  placing it on the stove shelves, with  which nearly all stoves7 are now supplied, or it may be filled with' hoiling  water a few minutes. When -wanted,  drain: quickly and fill.  Soup plates should be heated. The-  mistress should serve the soup from the  dish' placed on the table. Note that  it is not good form to serve too large  a quantity; only a small portion as an  appetizer for tbe more substantial viands  which  follow.  She should never he so busy or hard  pressed for lime that she cannot listen to him. If he lives to be a man  he will all too soon leave her. She  should make the most of him, while  jho has him.  She shuuld encourage outdoor- exercise or sports, and she should hot forget to train him with proper regard  tor  his personal appearance.  She should never allow him to form  auch habits as coming to the table in  his shirt sleeves, neglecting his nails  or teeth, or carrying soiled handkerchiefs abouiMvith him.  Sh should never nag'him, or forget  thai ho is a creature ot reason, not an  animal  that requires lo be driven.  Sho should not try to break her  boy's will, but bo thankful Ihul he is  manly enough to have a mind of his  own.  VALUE   OP  EGGS.  Eggs can be used, as a substitute for  paste or mucilage to seal a letter or a  jar of jelly.  The white of an< egg will allay tho  smart of a burn if bound upon it immediately, excluding  the air.  Half a dozen egg-i given immediately  after an emetic will renaor corrosive  sublimate harmless.  The white of an ogg beaten and  swallowed will'dislodge a fish bone  from   the   throat.  When a mustard plaster is mixed  wilh the whito of an ogg, instead of  water, no blister will follow its application.  Ia testing eggs remember that a  good egg will sink and a bad  egg will swim; if il is difficult to remember which is which, just stop lo  think that afresh egg sinks because  of the water ia its own composition.  ' Another test of a thoroughly fresh  egg is the distinctness wiLh which the  yolti may' be seen when the egg is  held up   to  the   light.  LET  THE  CHILDREN LAUGH.   -  Chavasso, an eminent surgeon,   says:  "Encourage your children   to be merry  and   to   laugh  aloud.   A  good,  hearty  laugh expands the chest and makes the  blood bound merrily along.     Commend  me    to    a   good   laugh, not to   a   little, sniggering   laugh, but to one that  will sound  right    through   lhe house.  It will not onlyi do your   child    good,  ! but will    be    a benefit     to   all    who  I hear, and   be   an important means of  j driving   the blues away from a   dwell-  i ing.   Merriment is   very catching and  I spreads in   a remarkable manner, few  | being able   to resist tho conta'gion.   A  ' hearty    laugh' is    delightful   harmony.  Indeed it is the best af all music.  Interesting for Women,  The    former  Empress    Eugenie has  gone   lo  the  Continent  in  accordance  wilh hor custom and will not return  to   England  for   eight  months.   Much  of her time will be spent on the Riviera  and  in   travelling  on  her  yacht. Her  English home at Farnborough is  said  to   be  a'mosl   substantial  building  of  red brick and stone, unpretentious, but  most comfortable.   Unlike many English country places, it is supplied with  gas, equipiJeu wilh a steam, plant,, and  supplied' with hydrants for protection  in  case  of  fire.   It  is  surrounded  by  beautifully wooded grounds. This is in  reality,  Eugenie's home, allhough she  spends  a large part of every   year in  travel.   She is uu early riser in spite  of   the fact that she suffers from insomnia.    Two   .friends   live  with  hor,  and her household consists of ten servants.    The regular ruuline of the day  is  described    as  monotonously    quiet.  Breakfast is an early meal, and is followed   by  letter  writing and  reading  the newspapers, which ure attended 10  V by  Eugenie's two devoted friends. She  1 someiiinas   visUs   the village of Farn-  ! borough in the morning, and regularly   beioro  lunuheon  every  day   a visit  is  made    to    tho    mausoleum  on   the  ' grounds  where' ihe Emperor and   the  Prince Imperial aro buried. The afternoon   lhe   Empress  usually  spends   in  walking  through  the grounds. On  her  visits   to   Lonuon   Eugenie  is    accompanied  always   by  four servants.  Her  comfortable and diguif ied estate of semi  royalty   is   maintained  wilh   her   own  fortune,   which   is  said'   lo    be   large'  : enough   lo  keep   her   in   luxury    and  will probably coutiuue to be sufficient  ^ for ihe rest ot hor life.   She gives lib-  ! erally lo charities in the neighborhood  I of her English home. Her entire time  I is spent iu Farnborough, save for occasional visits Lo London, which are made  lo attend  to her business interests. She  ia said  not  to be sad,  in spile of the  loneliness of her life. She has a bicycle  track at Farnborough, for   hor young  relatives,   and   takes  great  delight   in  ' their society when they visit  her. Tho  frien Jshiu of Quean Victoria has aiwuys  , been   a boon   lo her,  and   the  English  sovereign   has   never   failed   lo   recognize her equal  rights.   In the official  court   journal,   every   mention   of   Ihe  Empress   is  made  to  place  her on  an  exactly  equal  footing with the Queen.  same. Tho Empress, when in full dress  wears'many jewels. Some of these are  the property of the Crown, and she  is entitled to use them only so long  as her husband remains Emperor.tShe  has no right'to weor them as a widow.  But she has some beautiful gems given to her by Lhe Emperor at ; their  marriage, and a beautiful collection of  pearls left to her by tho late Empress  Augusta. The Empress Erioderich is  most economical in mailers of dress,  and so are the majority of women who  come tolhe German "-event. At the* so-  called " Schleppe Cour" or " train  court," which corresponds lo a presentation in England, the costumes are  not brilliant. The most necessary thing  is a train of satin of a certain length.  Some of these trains appear to have  been in use for years���������indeed, until  most of tho satin has been worn away,  and only thc back remains. They are  handed down for years in families, and  hiU-hed on lo the dresses, of various  members ofthe families to qualify them  for presentation at this formal court  function.-  THE BIRTHDAY FLOWER.  For a child's birthday party lot the  table be decorated wilh the flower of.  tho-month in which the child was born,  as: January, snowdrop; February, the  primrose; March, violet; April, daisy;  May, hawthorn ; June, wild rose; July,  lily ; August, poppy; September, convolvulus; October, hops; November  chrysanthemum; December, holly.  Each has an appropriate sentiment attached to it. The. snowdrop means  consolation; the primrose, youthtul  sunshine; the violet, modesty; the  daisy, innocence; the hawthorne, hope;  the wild rose, simplicity; the lily, purity; the poppy, the comfort of sleep:  the convolvulus, contentment; hops,  aspirdtion ; the chrysanthemum, cheerfulness ; holly, foresight and protection.  CHILDREN'S FOOD.  Whilo mothers should keep their  children clothed as well as means and  time permit, they must not forget thai,  while any.old thing.may do for a ch.'ld  to wear without serious discomfort,  too much care cannot be taken in regard to food. This is especially true  of lhe growing children in school. An  eminent physician says that " school  experiences are particularly apt to encourage irritation and waste of nerve  and muscle tissue. Hence the need  during school life of special care wilh  respect to diet."  ABOUT  IRONING.  To get the best resulls the starching  should be solid, stiff enough lo stand  wear, and flexible enough to give to  your movements.  A high polish should not be aimed at  but instead a fine even finish. Neckbands of shirts should be ironed in  their original shape, and set up at  right angles with the shirt to allow  the neck free play.  Very stiff wo: k does more damage to  your liuen than washing and wear  combined. Solid and flexible is the  thing.  SORE MOUTH'.  Children frequently have sores on  their tongues, caused from a deranged  stomach, more commonly known as  story blisters.. Sulphur is the very  best . remedy known.. It . stands far  ahead of the mouthwashes composed  of sage, borax, alum, etc., and is not  so painful. If the child is too small  to hold the sulphur in its mouth dry,  mix it with butter: If it swallows it  so much  the bettor.  THINGS MOTHERS SHOULDN'T DO  She should not forget that if she  treats her boy as a gentleman, she  will do much toward making him a  gentleman.  She sbvuld not treat her boy to per  petual   frowns,    scoldings,' and   faultfindings-   "Sugar attracts more   flies  than vinegar."1 Love wins her boy to  i nobis manhood.  SIBERIA'S WHEAT.  Thousands of Tons Wirrii Available For Ux-  jiorl C.asl Year.  A few years ago some of the hest  writers on the Russian Empire, including Prince Krapolkin, believed  that the wheat producing capabilities  of Siberia has been much overrated,  and that the country would never be  able, to produce much1 more of the cereal than it needs for its own consumption. But as the Siberian railroad lias  pushed through new regions* and thousands of Russian families have followed  its advance and made new homes, it  begins to look as though the writers  who held pessimistic views concerning  Siberian  agriculture were mistaken.  In lhe Altai mining district, last,year  over 300,000 tons of surplus wheat were  produced and only 5 per cent, of the  available agricultural lands have yet  been brought into cultivation. In the  fertile steppe country opened, up by  th'e western section of the railroad,  81,500 tons of wheat Were raised for export where until recently it was necessary to import wheal every ye i  Coi   local consumption  Fcv   peisons hive sufficient wisdom  lo piefer cm<-ure,  which is useful, t'  praise which deceives them���������Rochefou  cauld.  Mareolla Sombrich has a superb collection of jewels, which are valued at  more th-in $2t"0 0.:0 They are customarily carried in a casket built to contain the different articles, and this  is always carefully guarded. On the  day that she arrived Mme. S^mbrich  who is not a rail woman, seemed a foot  or two .laller thin her customary  height. Tho members of.tho company  who crossed ou lha steamer with her  were unable lo account for ihe change  as they stood among the Irunks awaiting the inspection of the luggage. One  of Lhem was finally unable to endure,  the uncertainty any longer, and went  over to find out the reason lor her  increased stature, ihen it was discovered that Mme. Sumorich was standing on her jewel <.-a���������-.kel. there wuo no  oiher way oi securing the customary  piuteotiou while ihe trunks were  opened, so she niuuuled ihe box in order to protect 11 from any possible  danger. A. somewhat similar incident  happened once iu jtussia; Mme. Scm-  biiuh was travelling frum St. i'eters-  burg lo Warsaw, She, her husband  and the jewel box were in one compartment, while her maid and the  courier with .whom she usually travels  wore in ahoihoi car. The olher passengers in the car were an officer whom  they had met iu SI. Petersburg and  two strange men. After the train led  Moscow the officer told Alme. Scmbrich  that ho had recognized the two men  as notorious thieves who had lately  beer released from prison and were  doubtless oh the train for the purpose  of getting at her .jewels,, which were  famous in Russia. He promised to:keep  guard from the outside. Mme, Sembrich  arid her husband locked, the door and  alternated in silting on the jewel casket until Warsaw was reached in the  early morning hours. Then a policeman  was brought to (he car, and nnder his  supervision,, the singer and her jewels were safely carried to the hotel.  Many of them were given; to the singer by admirers in Russia���������some of  whom were not even known to her by  name. Tho most valuable part of the  collection is a superb set of sapphires.  Few persons who have seen the German Empresewould believe that she  spends money extravagantly on her  dresses, yet she is said to keep twelve  women constantly employed on her  wardrobe, under the supervision of a  maid of honor. When she is about to  take a journey requiring especial ceremony this number is increased to forty,  and for every wedding she attends the  Empress is said to order fifteen new  dresses. In addition to the dresses  made in - her private establishment,  there are court, gowns brought from  Vienna to be .worn on state, occasions.  These are so long that the trains have,  to be carried to enable the Empress to  walk, and are frequently studded with  jewels.   The value of one dress, including tho jewels applied to the train, is  ;aid to have beeu' $20,000. The rule at  ihe German court makes it impossible  "or thi Empress to appear twice at the  late   functions  in  the same  costumn  ind  mmh of Ihj? work  done by    th"  welve  diesFsmakers  is  in making  al-  eiations   so   that   the  rule   may   not  bioken and the dresses have a dif-  leiWt   look though they are   toiIIv (lie  DAMMING THE NILE.  Tlie -*Vom!er.s of IUc (irn.-U Reservoir Jnst  Siai'iol at ,lsmi.-tii.  ' Since the building of the pyramids  Egypt has seen feSy such gigajitic undertakings as tho construction of the  great reservoir dam at Assuan, thc  foundation stone of which was laid a  few days ago by th'e Duke of Con-  naught, says the London Mail.  Th!is dam will be a mile and/ a quarter in length'; .the height of tho cop-  ingstone, will bo 300 feel above tho  bed of the lower river, and for 140 miles  Father Nile will feel the influence, of  this great impounding of waters.  English, engineers and English surveyors have planned lhis great enterprise, English money is at the back  of it, and English bondholders will,  next perh'aps to the cultivators of the  soil on the Nile hanks, derive the greatest benefit.  Five thousand dusky natives aro already a I work; one order for 3,000,-  000 barrels of European cement has  been or is about to be delivered; thousands of tous of granite ash'lar are being quarried from the Assuan side of  the river. Never has Lhe ancient river  on wh-jse bosom Moses was cradled  seen such industry. John Bull 'has  very   much  arrived.  Tha dam will bo built of material  taken from thc quarries al Assuan,  whence came the granite used for the  construction of ihe Thames embankment. s  On its compielion-ihe reservoir will  hold 26O,0CU,00J,000 gallons of water, and  across this huge artificial lake a bridge  will stretch, and camel trains ana  pedestrains will pass over, and all will  be life and bustle and hurry. Never  had the descendants of Pharaoh such  a shaking up.  Auu uhat is thei object of it all I  "Egypt is the Nile, and the Nile is  Egypt." In that ancient saying the  uhule business may be summed up. The  dam will bottle up ihe x'loh Nile waters; r     '       f  MILLIONS OF ACIUSS OF LAND  will bo irrigated; 2,500. square miles  will be reclaimed juoin the deserts ,  in short, me dam will increase, the  country's pruuuoin t> capacity by ii5per  cent. Egypt's output of raw sugar  will in a year or two bo 'doubled ;per-  haps  trotued.  Here ia a chance for the " depressed " British tanner. Let him go to  Egypi. The soil there, when u can  got Wile water, is moie kind ikan that  at h-jme, Cotton and sugux command  high prices, and one acre will produce .from four to five hundredweight  of long-staple conon. When the great  dam is completed vast tracts of land  will.be capable of producing two, if  ndl   three,  crops in  the  year.  The work will b& completed in -a little over five years from.now. This is  Lhe first time a river approaching the  size of the Nile has hadi a dam built  in it. Another novel thing about this  altogether novel under taking is that it  will   he  both' a dam. and  ii waterway.  Now, as to the cost'.7 When one considers the stupendous character ofthe  scheme, the many difficulties that will  have' to be overcome, and the incalculable benefits that will accrue, the price  doos not appear' exorbitant: The contractors are to receive, in round figures, ������1G0,000 a year for thirty years,  making in all about ������4,800,000,  The period over which this payment  is to extend must carry conviction to  lhe 'minds of other nations who have  set longing eyes on the valley of the  Nile that Great Britain' means to hold  onto  it,  for sorno time,  at any rate.  A curious obstacle was at thu outset  placed in this way of realizing the  scheme. The original plans for the  construction of ihe dam would have  involved the disappearance of thefam-  ous ruins of Ph'ilae. '     ���������';'..  Miles of petitions were drawn . up  nnd submitted to the authorities, and  scores of alternative plans suggest cd  some of them worthy, the imaginative  minds that had conceived them. -One  waw to remove PMlae, stone by i stone,  to Cairo, thus bringing it still easier  wilhin the reach of tourists.  Finally the engineers modified their  plans, and th'e dam will be one-third  lower th'an was at first proposed. Still,,  when the reservoir is finished, Philae  will never be itself again; for the  waters will wash' the' feet of the tem-  ole.������ th'at for age<9 hive stood like sen-  iinels guarding tho boundary of Nubia   and  Egypt  This is unfortunate, but Ihe most  onthusiastic of Egyptologists will confess  that the saorlfice is  not in vain  YOUN^FOLKa  DRJSAMS.  To dream of angels means joy ; anta -.  denote good trade ;    apples denote    a-  wedding���������sours      ones    denoting    bad  luck, sweet ones prosperity and good  luck.-  To dream of a donkey denotes fead:  luck, and it is said to ride ono is scorn-  to hold one is much toil; aud to dream  you aro beating one, you'll mourn.  To dream of a cloudy morning .shows  ill luck and grief; but to see a bright  sunny morn in your dream will,bring  you good news.  To dream you hear dogs barking and  howling is a bad sign.  To dream you hear bells is a sign  of enmity, or if you hear tho -wind  blowing it denotes hatred- and quarl-  ling.  To dream, of'   birds'*nests or    eggs,  shows good luck will come to you; but  if you dream you' are eating eggs, then .  sorrow is in store for you.  Clear water seen in a dream denotes-  good news, just as dirty water denotes  Ul luck to the dreamer.  If you dream you are crossing a  bridge, an elevation in life is in store  for you ; or if the bridge be broken,  difficulty and strife lie before you.   ,  Cats denote bad luck, except it ba  a black one that you dream of, then  this is lucky. '  To dream of cattle denotes riches to  come, whilo to dream of a sweep shows  good  luck will you attend.  Clocks aro good to dream about, but  if they strike then bad luck is the result.  To dream of fowls is good news : and.  if thoy crow, bettor luck still.  Old clothes denote a fire.  .   To dream of a corpse denotes fortune'  to "you.

Little Elsie felt herself quite a gardener as she quietly walked across thi  lawn with her new rake and watering can.  "My garden will always look nia.  now, for I can rake it smooth with mj  uew rake, and I shall water it everj  evening and th'en the seeds will all  come up and the flowers will looK  fresh."  Elsie hold up her head and looked  quite proud.  Sho had not gone far before she mot  her brother Dick.  "Ah I" said ho, "you ar - going t������  your garden. Have you any -seed to  set ?','  "No," said Elsie; "it is not the right  time."  "Doll seed m'ay bo set at any time,'1  said Diclc, taking two large beans out  of his pocket. "Don't s������t them verj  deep in the ground, and come overy  morning to see if they have come up."  Dick was very fond of playing tricks  on his sister though -his mother told  him it was wrong to do so, and he  laughed as he saw Elsie going off with  her beans, which sho set near' soma .  flower pots.  One morning Dick went off to th������  garden -with a small paper parcel tucked under his coat, and hid himself behind some bushes. .  Presently Elsie    came    along,    and  when , she looked'���������  at her, garden she  spread out her hands and'-'said:  7 "Oh 1" .--:': ':���������.':/:��������� ^  ..'���������'.  Close by the flower potsilay a little  wax doll. ,!'Elsie ran to the house, calling out;7  "Mother, mother I my doll seed has  come up. It has grown into a real  doll.     Come and look."  But -when her mother came and saw  Dick looking through the bushes, t.h������  said: "Oh I Dick, Dickl you have boen  playing your sister another trick."  THE  BIRDS' PETITION.

Whenever you go out to the woods  in winter- or early spring, always take  with you some corn or bread for us,  as our supply of berries will bo nearly  gone  by  that time.  Never take a gun or slingshot into  the woods with you.  Please   never   destroy   our  nests  or  take our young or eggs.  ,  Whenever you see a young bird on  the  ground  lift  it  up' into  its  little  home.  - Tell your mammas and aunties never to wear feathers in tlieir hats, as  thousands of us are slaughtered every  year   to   decorate  bonnets.

'  " So whilo his Majesty of Behar ro-  ������idod in a fine palace, facing the riv-  jr, and surrounded by a^'lordly park  In  which  the  most beautiful  flowers  ��������� ivero grown for his pleasure, and a  mako mound, togother with a menagerie of wild beasts kept for his amuse-  'ment, Soli lived wilh her father and  .ten little brothers and sisters in a  dilapidated  thatched hut just, outside  ��������� the King's  northern galo, and in   Lhe  .midst  of  a two-acre  compound    rank  with  overgrown   vegetation. Two olh-  Br creatures of widely different characteristics made up Soli's family circle  ���������a lean, humble cow, fdr itho greater  , ,part   Lathered   out   in   the  compound;  and  a monster cobra snake,  that, un-  - .invited had taken up' his abode in lhe  thatched roof of- lhe hut, and who being   regarded   by   tho  family,   as   the  1    Incarnate  spirit  of Siva,   the   terrible  .god  ot   the   lowest  caste   of   Hindoos,  was fed' on milk and eggs at all costs,  .even when  tho rest of  the household  were  nigh  upon  starvation.  Ofleu had Soli gazed wilh awe upon  Iheii  great neighbor, the King of Bo-  ,har; as he occasionally drove forth, a  r���������   blaze of jewels, foil a turn in the Cal-  ���������culta  maidan,  buL only once had  the  eyes  of   lhe  King fallen   upon  Soli.  "Doab, who is that girl?" demanded tho King of Behar of a handsomb  harkara, footman, standing upon the  splashboard of the equipage, as it  ���������swept past the hut on lhe occasion.  "Who is thai girl over yonder?"  The harkara purposely looked in tho  wrong direction, and replied that he  did not know, but thai he was as dusl  under lhe feet of the great king to  do his bidding.  i " Then find out," peremptorily ordered the king, for the girl's slender  form and graceful pose had pleased  his royal fancy. " Find out," said the  king.  " D'you hoar me, Doab ?"  Doab at once intimated that the  king's command snould be obeyed; but  as ho did so a, frown clouded the brow  of his usually placid countenance. For  some minutes Soli stood watching her  royal neighbor's progress, until as ho  passed out of.view, she turned to enter  the hut, when a voice at hand stayed  her tootstops.  "Soli I Hullo, Soli, there I"  " Ati, sahib," quickly responded the  girl, as she caught sight of the captain's steward of one of the ships lying at Garden Beach, who had approached tho hut unobserved.  " How about   that washing that was  lo  have been on  board  to-day f"  demanded tho stewa.rd. " We sail at noon  to-morrow, and it is now 5 o'clock." '  " It shall  be ready in  time, sahib."  "Not   ready  yet?"  " I will see," replied vthe girl, turning   sharply   toward  the  door   of   tho  hut.   Thon  she gave  vent to  a little  cry and started back; for with a loud  iiisM  a long,  dark  object glided  away j  trom under hor feet and coiled itself |  la  an  attitude  of aggressivo   defense.  of  Behar  again passed by  Soli's  hut,  as he approached his own domain.  " Mind, Doab," said ho to the harkara. " Mind you see about that girl  yonder."  Doab intimated that tho will of the  Light of the Universe should be in  that, as in all other respects, promptly obeyed. But the same dark look  crossed his face as ho sprang down to  run beforo tho horses 'and open the  gale for the King's carriage to pass  through.  By this time night had fallen upon  the land, and darkness set in save for  tho brilliant illumination of tho heavens, and those fairy lanterns of the  East���������the fireflies diincing in tho void  from  tree   to  troo.  In a little. Soli again stood at the  door of (he hut, her hair decked with  a wreath of steph.-inolis���������the delicate  perfume of which filled the air about  her.

" Was only a dhobin. Well, who is  she now,  then ?"  " Siva alone knows," replied the harkara   " She died last night."

"Why, John, how you talk���������a 'confirmed invalid'���������how very bad 1" said  his wife.-  "Yes; it is protty bad for Banx���������"  "No, 1 wasn't thinking about him, its  your language, John. Do you think  that is a good expression ? If he is an  invalid, isn't that enough? Confirmed, m'eans strengthened; now what  kind of a combination do you get out  of 'confirmed invalid ?' "  Banx looked up in a helpless kind  of way. He didn't like the language  lessons his wife administered to him  periodically, but he knew he needed  them1, and took thorn like any other  medicine.  "Well, anyway," he went on "Bumps  is a fine fellow and I'm sorry he's  sick���������used to like to hear him talk.  He's one of the finest conversationalists  1 ever "  "What!     Why,    John,      you    don't  mean that;   you   mean 'conversationist.* "  "Yes, I know, but I disremember���������"  "No, John dear, you never do    any  thing so improper, I am sure."  LThe Home  CANNED    GOODS.  An experienced   packer and    dealer,  writing of canned    goods,    says    that  many mora will be consumed whon the  women folkr    thoroughly    understand  that one-half of the people now( using  this class of goods use ihem; ignorant-  ly, and fail to derive satisfaction possible from   them.  As to tho safety in tho use of canned  goods, hundreds of millions of cans of  food aro consumed yearly, and there  never has been an authenticaied case  of poisoning proved against Lhemi lhat  cannot bo traced and attributed to the  cire.lessneHs of the consumer.  Nine-tenths of all the cans made today dro sealed  by being revo'lvedj in a  bed of molten solder, which seals them |.-.poonfuls of bakiiig   powder,  on th'e outside���������not  tho inside���������as can  bo seen by examining the line of solder  about a quarter of an inch from'    tho  rim.  Before using canned goods seo that  lhe ends of each aro sunk in. If such  is lhe case,r-ihe contents are good and  wholesome, and lhere need bono hesitation in using Lhe fruit. If the ends  of lire can are springy or bulged outward do not open it but throw it away.  A swelled or bulged can means fermented contents,   ,and    spoiled    goods  Uiould under no consideration boused.  After the can has been opened,  pour  contonts immediately into  a   porcelain  or glass dish.      ;Never leave them in a  can, as  this act is often  the innocent  cause of sickness, owing to lhe natural  chemical action of the air upon tho tin  and fruit.     First-class goods cannot be  purchased at the  price of second-class  goods. ,  Always bear in mind that all canned  goods have received a cooking varying  in length of time from five minutes lo  even hours, according to the character  of thc goods, and that but little further cooking is necessary.  Canned fruits on all kinds should be  emptied from the can several hours  beforo being served, poured into an  opan porcelain or glass dish, aud then  chilled in a refrigerator. Served cold  Lhey are most delicious and refreshing  and tasLo totally different from what  they did when, first taken from, the  can.  As  PLUMING   HER  WINGS.

"Ho was1 only waiting for his milk,"  replied the girl, as/ if making an apol- j  ogy  for  tho cobra's* act.   "I  had for-I  gotten  to , give  it  him.   If  you  had  Blruck Siva it would have been   terrible." .    .    ',.  "I hope I didn't hurt you," said tho  steward in  a tone  of real  concern.  " Oh; no," replied the girl, as she  thereupon ran inside, and shortly returned to say���������that the captain sahib's clothes would surely be on board  the ship early th'e  next morning.  "All right, Soli," replied the' steward. " But look here; ; you take my  advice and kill that snake; god or no  god,' the next time you seo him, or  he'll kili you, that's7 truth."

DAZZLING RICHNESS PREVAILS.  4<oi-;;coiih  Kiu>sl.-in    Insidious    dJcnci'.iliy  ftcyoud ttCM-i-itXloii,  The Russian court, military and nain-  istoiial dress is cos.ly and rich in the  "We cannot expect to have her under our eye every minute now, as when  sho was on the nursery floor; and for  ono, I'm'not going'to try. She must  plume hex wings, I suppose. We'have  lo carefully instruct her as to the dangers of the outside world, end then  trust her.   God keep her I"  I think there is nothing more trying  to the parents of a high and refined  sense of propriety  than ihe epoch in  a  child's life,  be it  son or daughter,  when the little wings begin to appear,  lhis question  as  to the  hours    after  schoo,; while the girl is in school you/  know where she  is; after sho    comes  oul���������where?   She must have .exercise,  musthave the fresh air, must have re^  creation, play, frolic.   Yet, with whom?  And  where?     We older people know,  that the streets of a groat town, or a  Iittlo village, for that matter, are full  of perils; we know   the frights, the  possible insults,   the lures and snares.  Yet we do not'quite wish to fully ex- .  plain all these things to a child; tho  explanation itself is-a tarnishing process.    We do not like oui* child to look  upon life with    a horrible 'suspicion,  nor hang  the    sweet outer  air    with  ghostly  shadows.     Still,  there  is  the  tact���������it is a bad world.   If the   little  girl ls oul after dusk, we know there  are lurking dangers; and if she does  not appear at the tea table, we know  not where to seek her.   One might as  well  look for  a needle in a haymow,  as to search for a person in a   great  town, when once that person has walked off your block.  It is indeed necessary to cultivate a  child in self-reliance. Tho good wife  was right. You may coddl3 till you  spoil. The child must learn to take v>  care of herself, in a measure, and it  wore better that sho learn it while you  parents are alive to help her than  after you are gone. Then, too, there ,  is no doubt that very sensitive natures  imagine forty horrors which never did  come and never will. There are parents who seem lo become careless of  the whereabouts of their growing  children; arid possibly their children  get along just about as well as those  over whom parents worry every minute that they are out of parental eyesight. This last sentence might be  dispuled, but, for my part, I am sura  thai my children were never one-half  the care lo me while small that they  have been since. I,-frankly confess  that the most difficult thing has been  for mo to know just how ftir to trust  them to themselves, and how far to  keep a vigilant eye upon them. Aa  each in turn has grow-n to the pluming period, I have suffored tortures,  till I saw and fully knew the right  tendency of character and force of  will to do right.

It is a fact that no  court in tho world presents such a picturesque and magnificent appearance  as does that of Russia. At any function, therefore, (ho show is brilliant,  bui more especially,, perhaps, at a ball,  when ihe rich evening toilets of the  ladies, enhanced by. jewels of priceless  worth, add much Lo tho already brilliant effeci. The Russian dances are  of a vory stately description and both  ihe emperor and empress take part in  thorn very thoroughly.   .  The   aspect    of     Ihe    aimorial hall'  where thj supper is often laid, is grand  beyond all  detcription.      This meal is  not partaken of standing, as at      the I  majority of courts,  but the guests sit  down at   (he   long rows of tables.     A I  procession is  formed,  which  is headed  by his imperial majesty and the most  distinguished   lady present,    and    the  room is   then  entered in  Lhe order of  precedence.     Of   course;    an immense  quantity of   plaLe is    aispi.-iyed.     This  and the china   that is    also used    are  noted  lliioughoul    Europe    for    their  richness   and    beauty.   ; Thare is   one  service alone capable'of dining 5t) persons   that  is composed entirely of tho  purest silver overlaid  wilh gold. Added to alt this the use   of   a    variety of  the choicest    fruits    and     tho    rarest  (lowers, nm'oiy   which    orchids   figuro  largely, makes  the  scene one. of  most  gorgeous magnificence.

It is far better to instruct lha  young  thing as  to the    wrongs ' and  dangers of  the  outer world,  than to  leave her to    discover    these    things.  Discovery is attended with Che danger  of exploration.   Discovery has an  de-.  ment  of the unreal and partial in it ;"'  one wants to know more, ono is lured  on   by  a  false  seeming  of attraction.  Far better, with your own clean lips,  inform the growing youth of the hideous sins that  lie in    wait  to    catch  young    lives.     You    can picture    tho  thing  in  its  native  hatefuiness,    and  win half the baitle to begin with.  Do  not enter into noisome details; oxcito  no curiosity; tell enough lo make lha  evil seem dangerous, fatal and  unattractive, but no more.  I    "If   my child   over can   go alona I"  But though a parent sigh thai, j'et a  parent  ought to know that none of us  ever  come to   the time when wo  can  "go alone."   Life is never safe.     There  ore dangers to young wings ; there are  yec hawks for tho oldest wings.   There  is truth in Solomon's lament:      "Tho  day of one's death is better than   tha  day of his birth."   That is, if he proposes  not  to  bo    a  strong,    vigorous,  fighling,  virtuous soui.      We are  all  children.   We are all    at school, ,and  must meet the bears in the woods-as  we go and come.   The protection of a  keen wit, a pure heart and a watchful    Providence���������these\ are  as    much  needed by the young girl's mother,and  father as by   the child herself.      The  larger, tho game, the larger the beasts  of prey; that's all the difference.  Still,-for all that,1 it must ever remain true that the period of young  plumes is tho period of peril, above all  others. Tho new-found powers of  appetite and passion, as also of thought  and aspiration, knock with groat  might against tho young breast.

Sandon sportsmen h'ave a strong plea  for not being experts at baseball, lacrosse, football and everything,in fact,  but hockey and curling, as they have  no grounds for practice.

This company has had long engagements in all  the large cities of America.  The baseball matchat New Denver  011 the 24th was not between Nelson  arid Sandon, but between Nelson and a  picked up team in. which a couple of  Sandonites played. Mr. Compean's  catching for Sandon was much admired, but' he could not do catching  and fielding at, the same time.

The question can be solved-by what  the Irishman calls "the rule of three.  ^Quite half of the city of Dawson was  devastated by fire oh the 2Gth of April.  About $4,000,000 worth of property was  destroyed,, in all 111 buildings. ' The  Bank ot B. N.

W. Press association  when they reach here, about the 15th  of June. They could spend the day  visiting the mines, arid, at a banquet  at night, local speakers could fully advise them as to the resources ot our  surroundings. The country around  requires capital to develop it, and it is  only by representing through the press  and otherwise, that we have the opportunities for safe investments, that  capital will be drawn this way. No  doubt Rossland will give them a big  boom, and Sandon should not be behind. .'.. ,.-. ,       r -  The slides took the 24th, when all  of Sandon was holidaying, to make,  their annual visits. A land slide at  Squire Lovatt's completely filled up  the street,'but it did not move tho  stable there. A second slide damaged  trie flume leading to tho city water  tank. It diminished the water supply  for a time, which was a'goo.i thing for  the hotels and breweries, as there was  no w;here' else to get drinks. Tho  Noble Five also came down with terrific force.' It forced the crook up hill  and did much.damage to thc wagon  road. On account ol the backwardness of the season the 'slides are late in  putting in an appearance, and, if they  are ail over now, the people will not  coriiplain of the loss.
